5 bands I am most happy to have found:

Every year around this time I start to wonder what new bands and music I will stumble upon in the next year. I decided to list the 5 bands I was most happy to discover in 2006. And by most happy I mean they got the most playing time in the iPod and CD players […]

Random cd cover observation:

Random cd cover observation:

When I first saw the SAOSIN cover in Vinyl Fever I knew it looked familiar but I could not place where I had seen it before: The Pitchfork posted a review of a cd by an artist named Josef K and I knew immediately where I recognized both it and the SAOSIN cover from: They […]

Remembering Guns N' Roses – Appetite for Destruction

Remembering Guns N' Roses – Appetite for Destruction

The other night I Tivo’ed “When Metal Ruled The World” off VH1 and watched it over the weekend. I don’t think anyone has actually forgotten about Appetite so perhaps this is more of a “raving about Appetite” post. It’s hard to believe Appetite will turn 20 years old in ’07. After 19 years, the album is still […]

VICTORY!

VICTORY!

If I remember 8th grade Algebra postulates correctly (doubtful) then the property of equality states: if a = b and b = c, then a = c. To extrapolate that to last night: UCLA beat USC: 13-9 FSU beat UCLA: 44-27 therefore: FSU is better than USC okay, it doesn’t really work like that but […]

International Mix Tape Project – December 2006

International Mix Tape Project – December 2006

My intent here at ninebullets is to review the Cd’s I get every month from the IMTP. Well, the CD I got last month was the poo-poo so here’s to hoping this month’s is better. It was way down tempo instrumentals and a few sleepers with a foreign singer. Needless to say, it only got […]

Flashback Friday: Produkt13

Flashback Friday: Produkt13

Okay, you don’t remember P13. As a matter of a fact, you’ve never heard of P13. Produkt13 was me and my bud Mike. Earlier in the week I was going through some old Cd’s in the computer room and came across a few mp3s of our songs, so I decided to post them here. These songs offer a little light […]

looking for something to do tonight?

Tonight…at The Emerald Bar. Joey’s 30th birthday with Nessie, The Weapons of Ass Destruction, Rob Coe and the Diviners Cost : $4.00 Show is supposed to start at nine and if you know The Emerald that means it will start at ten but I have it on good authority that they are trying to get […]

Jurassic 5 & Dilated Peoples

Jurassic 5 & Dilated Peoples

After writing about the Cunninlynguists CD the other day I’ve had this nagging feeling I should mention a couple other Cd’s that were awesome and completely ignored. So, while these are not better than A Piece of Strange, if I was making a top 5 I’d have a hard time listing which was number 2….but, […]

Remembering Bucky Fellini

Remembering Bucky Fellini

A few days ago, on one of the message boards I frequent, a poster asked for some skaters from the 80’s to suggest some tracks for an 80’s skate compilation he was making. I went through my memories and listed 5 tapes that were always being played on my half-pipe as a kid. After I […]
